ON Whit-Sunday two years ago the Memorial Service of the British Legion was broadcast from the Cenotaph in Whitehall. A similar service will be held there as usual this Whitsun-tide, and at many other centres up and down the country. The most important ceremony this year, however, is that held at Southsea, near Portsmouth, where the Legion's Annual Conference is due to open on Whit-Monday. To pay this solemn tribute to the memory of their fallen comrades upwards of ten thousand ex-Service men will be assembled before the Naval War Memorial, which stands in a commanding position on Southsea Esplanade between the spacious green common and the sea. Incidentally, this Memorial, which rises to a height of a hundred feet, is a replica of the Naval Memorial at Chatham.

Evensong on Whit-Sunday will take listeners in spirit to one of the loveliest and oldest parish churches of the West Country.
Yeovil Parish Church, famous as 'The Lantern of the West,' built in 1380 and the succeeding years, is a fine example of early Perpendicular, remarkable for the uniformity of its conception, design and execution.
